At the least, it kept her occupied for awhile as I climbed into Michelle's van for a ride-along to deliver Nadine to her new home in Kendall.
This is the second time I've gone with Michelle on a home delivery, and it's such a kick. It gives me a chance to bond one last time with a dog I've gotten to know at the FoG kennels. And the excited greeting we get from the new family when we knock on the door is the best -- after all, what we're delivering is much more highly anticipated than a big box from Amazon.

I was put in charge of keeping my eye on Nadine as she scampered around inside and out sniffing her new digs -- and, near the end of our visit, meeting and greeting her new feline sibling. That last part went well. Both of them reacted with mild indifference, a good sign that they'll get along just fine.
Nadine's adoption leaves FoG with an all-male guest list -- Doc, who could be finding a home soon; Kango, scheduled to have a visitor Wednesday; black boys Ringo and Domino; shy Casey; and stately Randy. Four more guests are knocking at the door, though, so the kennel will be full again by the end of the week.
